ORLANDO, Florida (AP) -- Orlando Magic starting forwards Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu say their injuries won't sideline them for the NBA playoffs.

Both participated in full-contact drills on Friday.

Lewis missed the last three games with right knee tendinitis. The All-Star forward says he's feeling fine and will play normal minutes in the first-round playoff series Sunday against Philadelphia.

Turkoglu says he will be able to play through minor pain in his sprained left ankle, which caused him to miss the last two games.
